YSR Congress Party MP K Raghurama Krishna Raju wrote to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on June 18, alleging that there is a threat to his life from his own party leaders.
In the letter, he requested the speaker to provide him with a central forces security cover. “I earnestly request you to kindly provide me armed security to avoid the life threat.”
K Raghurama Krishna Raju has been vocal against party leadership for a few weeks. His comments that he is not getting the appointment of YS Jagan raked much controversy. During recent assembly budget sessions, a group of ministers and MLAs lambasted on the rebel MP.
Later, party leaders and cadre in the West Godavari district burnt the effigy of the MP.
“Though I belong to the ruling party, because of all these agitations and events which are conducted by the YSRCP MLAs and cadre without police resistance, I am frightened to go to the constituency without protection,” he said.
